Design & Construction

Burns & Levinson attorneys in our Design & Construction Practice provide practical legal advice to public and private clients engaged on a variety of building and infrastructure projects. As a complement to the firm's Real Estate and Litigation Practice Groups, the Design & Construction Practice focuses on representation of public, private, and institutional owners and developers requiring a broad range of legal services necessary to deliver successful facility development programs. For many years, Burns & Levinson attorneys have also represented design professionals, contractors, subcontractors, and sureties in connection with a wide spectrum of design and construction industry matters.

Burns & Levinson attorneys understand that, in today’s complex regulatory and financial climate, successful project delivery requires a multi-disciplinary legal approach involving attorneys with skills and experience in the areas of contracts and public procurement, insurance, surety, lien law, finance, labor/employment, government relations, and litigation. Our clients have the advantage of working with a team of highly-qualified and experienced legal professionals who can navigate the risks and complexities of challenging projects in a way that best protects our clients’ interests.
